    I just so happened to be looking for a refurb today :mad:

    Are there MBP 15" on there often? If so, how much?

    It could be that they had a glut of them when they were fixing all of the initial problems. Now, it is possible that the inventory has dried up a little.

    IN any case, check back on Tuesday morning (tomorrow). It is likely that you'll see some more refurbished stuff then.

    Also, today was a holiday in the states.

    You have to be up really early in the morning when they post new stuff. I will say that they put stuff up at the same time every weekday so keep an eye out. I got frustrated with waiting for a refurb C2D Macbook and just went to the store and got one (student discount). I was still seeing a lot of good deals on the C2D MBPs up until a few days ago when I stopped looking.

    A few members have but I personally have not. Someone did mention that the C2D MBs will be coming out this week so let's hope because I have the moo-lah ready :D

    I haven't seen C2D MBs on there but people claim there have been. I was going on almost every night for weeks. I was always on within minutes of them posting new stuff...but then again I do have bad luck with these things. I also found that they don't (often?) post on weekends. They usually had a wide variety of C2D MBPs but most of those were usually gone before noontime EST.

    Anyway, that's been my experience. I would guess that they'll have quite a few C2D MBs out soon...

    Will they put Leopard on refurbs even if it was not installed on the machine originally (assuming it has been released)? :confused:

    I have been looking at the 15" refurb MBP (planning to buy one in about 1 month) and a 15" CD 2.0 GHz MBP was $1,349, dont remember if there was 512MB RAM or 1GB though. They had been on there almost everyday i looked until about 3 days ago.

    No refurbished MacBooks? Thats a good thing maybe a sign that the new ones get purchased quickly. Glad I got mine when I did :D

    The C2D Macbook Pros are there. I saw some on Wednesday morning, and they were gone by 10am pst or so. More came up on Saturday morning, and I snagged one then!:D They again were no longer listed by about 10am.

    I only saw the 15", but they had both models available.
    $1599 and $1999.

    Apple put up a bunch of refurbs but all I see are core duo. They did put up a couple MBP intel core 2 duo today though. 15" and 17" ones.

    From what I've seen C2D's are 10-15% faster, and they will run 64 bit programs.
    For "real world" uses, there isn't a lot of difference.
